Christmas in May

This afternoon I'd like to share with you a Christmas card I made for 2 challenges:

52 Christmas Card Throwdown
CASE-ing Christmas

The original card inspired the colors, the bird, and the ribbon & pearls on my card. I used the sketch from 52CCT. Here is the original card by Mynnette Kitchen from CASE-ing Christmas.

And the sketch from 52CCT:

Materials used:
